Woohoo, Friday! How was your week? I got a bunch of small things crossed off my list, which feels so darn good. I know so many of you are wonderful at keeping things in control and that's something I really envy.
I realized that I have forgotten to share my Spring in a Jar block for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Issue 13 with you. This issue is now on newsstands!
I love simple applique shapes. These are perfect to practice your machine blanket stitching. Of course you can straight stitch around the edge as well , which seems to be the popular finishing method.
Popular or not, I love the blanket stitch. I remember when I was looking at upgrading machines from my old used Singer my dad bought me in 1974, the main thing on my list was the blanket stitch. I've spent lots of hours stitching away and it's still my preferred method of applique. I hope you like my block with the pieced background.
Ok peoples.. hope you have a wonderful weekend! xo
